I never in 100 years would have expected that kind of reaction to have taken place. Looks like the ball is made of rubber! I am truly and utterly astonished!

#4 no its not broken,because its flexible,inside the ball the are more layers of rubbers that makes the ball very flexible 8-)

I've cut a few gold balls open just to see what's inside before and i know alot of the cheaper ones had what looked like tightly bound ball rubber bands, others had a harder more dense rubber compound. The outer shell is a type of plastic so also quite malleable.

So it doesn't supprise me in the least they behave this way when smashed against something hard.

Still pretty cool thing to see though!!! :D

I bet you that one won't fly as straight as it use to. Also, why is there "cricket" in the top corner?

I think the video shows a greater impact than when hit by a golf club. I think it shows what a golf ball is capable of when hit by something even harder. I've seen other slow mo vids. of a club face hitting a ball and it doesn't compress that much. Still very impressive.

I'm not sure this video is real, unless it was shot out of a gun.

Oke. 24 Hours ago I thought this was cool... but now I think it's not real. I have been doing 3D modeling some time ago and this video was very easy to create...about 4 hours of work + rendering time.
I happen to have a golf ball on my desk ... and if this sucker bends and deforms like that I'll hit my knee with it. If you hit it hard enough it will crack !

I don't know what to think anymore...the internet is a mean place :S I'm starting to think my mouse is not real :S

I used to cut golf balls down to the rubber bands and string them all around my room when I was a kid. It came to look like a giant spider web!! These rubber bands were miles long, it seemed like, and you could stretch them for another mile! Fun thing to do for a bored kid on a rainy afternoon. -Ah, memories... >:)

#18 So it isn't real if it is shot out of a gun? How the bloody hell does that make it any less real?!

They've probably used an artificial launcher (read: not a golf club) to get the ball flying at a constant launch angle and velocity - to test the impact properties.

Bottom line is: how the ball was launched has nothing to do with it! It's how it reacts when it impacts steel @149mph.
